    amazing spiritual adventure

    "The Light Bringer" is unlike any other book that you will ever read. Each reader will have their own thoughts and interpretations of the story line. Why do awful things happen to decent people? Are any of us really prepared for sudden loss of life, or profound suffering and grief? What about the afterlife? Is there one? All of those things are well worth our contemplation, yet most of us put off dealing with our own vulnerability and mortality. The protagonist of "The Light Bringer" is Alan Crane, whose honorable military service to our country later leads to a career as a law enforcement officer. Alan is a strong, steady, rational man who has great empathy for others. He sees beyond the finality of death, and he knows the value of life. His time in combat and the issues he deals with on a daily basis as a policeman make him all too aware of the volatility and vulnerability of human nature. He has also witnessed many times over the effect of careless greed and lack of care from one human being to another. When a mysterious man, a "government agent", approaches Alan to join a special crisis intervention bureau, Alan at first thinks it is a practical joke being pulled by a coworker. The agent, Michael Simmons, convinces Alan that the bureau is no joke, and Alan has been chosen due to his skill and sensitivity in dealing with grieving family members. Alan agrees to work with Simmons and also continue his role in local law enforcement. Thus begins a fantastic journey which will take Alan to places far beyond his imagination, a journey filled with danger, discovery, and death. Along the way, Alan learns to an even greater extent of how we are interconnected with those around us and how our actions set off chain reactions. Each of us has a dark side and a "light" or good side, and it is Alan's destiny to become a "Light Bringer", one who leads people to their spiritual fate. Alan is also a warrior, fighting to overcome the darker evil forces all around us, forces both known and unknown. "The Light Bringer" is a spiritual adventure, a thoughtful fantasy, and ultimately a reaffirmation of life. This book should be read more than once, and it is a perfect book for a reading group. It touches upon issues we all need to address, and sharing our thoughts and feelings with others can only lead to greater enlightenment.

    Highly Recommend! Excellent book!

    Love this book..Highly recommend to everyone. I really had a hard time putting it down. Finnished it in 2 days, warning... once you pick up this book, housework may be set to the side :) I really enjoyed the story line and it kept me interested throughout the entire book! Makes you really think twice about how you live your life and changed my perspective on a few things. Thank you to the Authors for writing such an amazing story!

    Very well written with a story line that will keep you going!

    The Light Bringer by Chris DiGiuseppi and Mike Force was an excellent read! I am a very avid reader and enjoy many types of books; however, being married to someone in law enforcement, I tend to enjoy a good mystery! Knowing that the authors have spent many years in law enforcement only increased my desire to read this book. I was initially expecting something along the lines of James Patterson. What I found was more along the lines of Patterson with a twist of Dean Koontz- two of my favorites... so I was definitely NOT disappointed! I honestly have never read a book with the story line &/or characters like what appears in The Light Bringer. I finished the book in less than two days... and I have a full time job! I am looking forward to the next book by DiGiuseppi & Force! Well done Gentlemen!
